Wellness and Smart Snacks
Wylie ISD School Health Advisory Council reviews and assesses the District Wellness Plan every three years in order to assure objectives are met. In January 2020, the Wylie ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) approved changes to the District Wellness Plan and Local Wellness Policy. These changes have also been approved by Wylie ISD Administration. You may access the Wylie ISD Wellness Plan by visiting our SHAC site.

WELLNESS TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS:
We have a few outreach tools for PTA's, principals and school wellness advocates:
As part of Wylie ISD’s Wellness Plan for foods sold, the District will comply with federal requirements for reimbursable meals. For other foods and beverages sold to students during the school day, (midnight until 30 minutes past the last bell) the District will comply with the federal requirements for competitive foods. Competitive foods and beverages are not part of the regular meal programs and occur through sales such as a la carte options or vending machines. For purposes of this plan, these requirements will be referred to as “Smart Snacks” standards or requirements.
State rules adopted by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) allow an exemption to the Smart Snacks requirements for up to six days per year per campus when a food or beverage is sold as part of a District fundraiser. [See CO(LEGAL)] Campus principals will submit exemption dates and activities to the Director of Child Nutrition at least one week prior to the activity date for review.
